    I wouldn't bother mate to be honest, they are dangerous, I'd either not bother at all or get a proper one fitted, bolt in ones are that expensive.

    Look on Deamon Tweeks

    Good to know you got one sorted, pics would be good. I was considering the same route for track days as a proper built cage is over £900 for mine.

    Sounds like a very good deal, materials alone are costly these days as I have costed it up for FIA spec stuff.

    I'd like to see some pictures of this cage. I doubt I could make one for that. Is this a full or half cage? The hot rod guys tend to make pretty good cages as the rules are somewhat tighter than most. I know the SEGTO rules are tight as I've made a few back in the day!

    Not my cup of tea but I do appreciate the amount of effort put into it. I do like the fact that mates can't always blag a ride as there are only two seats. Did this affect your insurance alot with those level of mods?

    Now I know what to look out for I'll give you a honk if I see you! Look out for a grey Audi Avant with black grill running around!

    i got a half cage very similar to yours mate. i got it off a friend last week for £40, im not sure where he got it from but i know he had it in his clio, its a pretty decent fit in the back of my pug though. ill try and get a pic up for you. im new to this and modifying cars, so will be looking on here for alot of inspiration and advice.

    Personally, I wouldn't use a roll cage not designed for my car.

    It isn't designed to be in there. A roll cage should strengthen the chassis because it's designed to stop flex. 'Old Git' will have more in-depth input but basically I can't imagine a cage designed to fit in a Clio supporting a 206 as it should do. Assuming we are talking about a proper roll cage? Not a show cage.

    this is just a show cage mate, i understand it does nothing atall to suppost or strengthen the car :)

    cheers mate thats good to know. im totally new to this and have very limited knowledge on cars. i got this pug very cheap in quite a bad shape, so am just trying out different things and experimenting at the moment. just ordered some bucket seats, so will probably be looking for some fitting advice when they arive.
